ahhhh, you bring back pleasant memories of Bubba's shrimp dishes in "Forrest Gump". Here's his quote but I'll substitute "pumpkin" for shrimp" just for fun:

Anyway, like I was sayin', pumpkin is the fruit of the Fall. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, pumpkin-kabobs, pumpkin creole, pumpkin gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple pumpkin, lemon pumpkin, coconut pumpkin, pepper pumpkin, pumpkin stew, pumpkin salad, pumpkin and potatoes, pumpkin burger, pumpkin sandwich. That- that's about it. ~Bubba

I think puchasing a special pumpkin may be an old-wive's-tale. At least, that's my opinion.

Can you tell that I love pumpkins?

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
The small pumpkins are sweeter. There is a big difference in taste. At least for my taste buds. And they are not as stringy as the big ones for carving. There is also a difference in color. The small ones have a brighter orange color. I do buy the little ones for making the bread loaves for the church fair. For the family I use canned pumpkin.

And yes, I can see you LOVE pumpkin. Lots of nutrition in pumpkins.

That was the first thing I thought of when I saw his post!

Pumpkin rolls are big in this area. I personally like pie.

Just the name sounds decadent.

As I have stated before, I don't drink, never have. But that isn't saying I haven't had food that has alcohol in it. A lot of times I come across a recipe that calls for wine, bourbon, etc. The problem is that not every thing in the liquor store come in the little nip bottles. And that is just about what I would need for the recipe. I don't want to buy a full bottle. I may never use the rest of it. So I pass the recipe by.

You need to take a plane ride, Addie. Then, once aboard, for the small price of $7, you too can get a tiny bottle of booze.
